Mental Health Virtual Assistant

Virtual Assistants For Therapists, Psychologists, & Psychiatrists

Mental health issues are incredibly common – and there is increasingly less stigma surrounding seeking treatment. In fact, since the COVID-19 caused skyrocketing levels of anxiety and depression, more people sought out mental health care and were able to take advantage of more modern options, such as telehealth. According to some reports, mental health professionals are busier than ever before – leading to stress, burnout, and a desire to leave the field entirely.

If you work in mental health, you may have found yourself overwhelmed with the demands of running a busy practice. A skilled mental health virtual assistant can help to ease the administrative burdens of running your own business. Starting at just $4.99 per hour, a virtual assistant can lighten your load using secure cloud-based technologies.

At Tasks Assistant, we understand how challenging it can be to handle paperwork, scheduling, and other administrative tasks. We offer virtual assistant services specifically geared to the needs of mental health professionals. Reach out to us today to learn more about how one of our mental health virtual assistants can help your business grow.

What Does a Mental Health Virtual Assistant Do?

A mental health virtual assistant assists with practice management for professionals in the mental health field, including psychiatrists, psychologists, therapists, social workers, and counselors. A virtual assistant will take on all of the daily tasks that can take you away from what you truly love to do: help people who are struggling with their mental health.

Our virtual assistants can work with any mental health professional, including:

  • Private practice owners
  • Group practice owners
  • Psychiatrists
  • Psychiatric nurse practitioners
  • Psychologists
  • Counselors
  • Clinicians
  • Therapists
  • Social workers
  • Life coaches

Depending on your needs, a mental health virtual assistant can help with scheduling, appointment reminders, billing, intake paperwork, and general administrative tasks such as paying invoices and reconciling payments.

A virtual assistant is a cost-effective solution to a problem that plagues many small business owners. As a busy professional, you can’t do everything yourself – but you can’t necessarily afford to pay a full-time employee to handle this work for you. In addition to a salary, hiring an assistant also requires you to provide benefits, purchase insurance, pay employment taxes, and more.

With a mental health virtual assistant, you can get the same high quality services for a fraction of the cost. Our assistants’ rates start at just $4.99 per hour, and because they are independent contractors, you aren’t responsible for benefits, workers’ compensation, or payroll taxes. In this way, you can shift some of the more mundane tasks associated with running your own practice to your assistant – without killing your budget.

If you find yourself spending time on administrative tasks that take you away from patients, or worry that you are losing business because no one is answering your phone when you’re in a session, a mental health virtual assistant might be a great option for you. When you free up your time to focus on your patients, your business will grow – and you’ll be able to earn more money and/or have more free time.

How It Works

When you contact Tasks Assistant, we talk to you to find out more about what exactly you need in a mental health virtual assistant. This allows us to choose a virtual assistant who can best help you. For example, if you require bookkeeping in addition to scheduling and billing, we might pick an assistant who is skilled in these types of work.

Once you have been assigned a mental health virtual assistant, you will get a chance to talk to them about what work you need them to do and your preferred methods of communication and work. If you have a preferred software program for billing or calendaring, you can simply ask your assistant to use that technology. When you start working together, you’ll be able to keep in touch via email, Zoom, Slack and Skype.

All of your assistant’s work will be performed using cloud-based services so that you can access information 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. For example, if your assistant is in charge of your calendar, they will be able to input appointments and meetings directly into your electronic calendar of choice so that you will have up-to-date information right at your fingertips. If you need to talk to your mental health virtual assistant about a specific issue, you can send them an email or schedule a time to chat.

Our virtual assistants are paid an hourly rate, starting at just $4.99 per hour. If you aren’t satisfied with the work that they have done for you, we won’t charge you for their work. You will never have to sign a contract or pay a start-up fee to use our services. 

All of our virtual assistants are based in Mumbai, India. They work across time zones so that they are available when you need them.

How We Protect Patient Confidentiality 

There are strict laws regarding the confidentiality of patient information and financial data. Our team is familiar with these laws and regulations, and works hard to ensure that your information is kept secure.

We use an industry-best vetting process to make sure that our virtual assistants are not only highly skilled, but that they are also ethical and trustworthy. We conduct background checks, contact references, and perform interviews to ensure that we are only hiring the best of the best. We also conduct regular internal compliance checks to make sure that our team members are using the best practices for security and confidentiality. 

Tasks Assistant is dedicated to using the latest software and technology to keep confidential data safe. If you have a particular program that you would like your assistant to use, just ask. We are happy to accommodate most requests so that our clients have peace of mind in knowing that their sensitive information is secure.

Want to Grow Your Practice? Start with a Mental Health Virtual Assistant.
